Doja Cat thrives on connecting directly with her fans through social media.

The “Say So” singer can often be found on her various social media channels, whether she’s hopping on Instagram Live, making a TikTok video or responding to fans on Twitter.

In an interview with ELLE magazine, the Grammy-winning star explained that she thrives on that interaction and enjoys having their feedback.

“I’ve put a lot on myself. I’m just constantly live…Sometimes I look at myself and I’m like, Well, if you could just f###### turn off your phone for, like, five minutes ….she said. “(But) when I get creative, I like to see what people think about it. I’ll be like, ‘Should I do this hat or this hat?’ Or “We’re going to do a 90s-inspired makeup thing today.”


However, the 26-year-old’s openness on social media has also gotten her into hot water in recent years, she was criticized in 2018 for a homophobic tweet she wrote in 2015. Doja s apologized for each of her missteps at the time.

When asked how she handles social media controversies, she replied, “I just turn off my phone. I delete things and reopen them when I’m ready. That’s kind of how it works for me.

The ‘Kiss Me More’ star also assured fans that she will always be 100% authentic online, even if she says the wrong thing.

“There is no formula for winning, but I think there is a formula for losing,” she said. “If you don’t believe in what you’re doing, people aren’t stupid – they’ll figure that out real quick. You just have to believe in yourself. It really does sound like crap from the SpongeBob movie, but it’s true.
